Interior designer Anna Burles from Run For The Hills has just completed a super cool and creative collaboration with vintage store “Retro Living”. Situated in the heart of Marylebone, on Church Street, nestled within one of West London’s antique store hot spots. The duo have come together to curate a range of beautifully restored and collectable furniture pieces; re-upholstered, re-invented and re-styled using a selection of fashion forward fabrics and finishes selected by Anna.
Retro Living is a vintage and retro collectables store set up nearly 6 years ago by Malcolm Russell. Malcolm’s exceptionally well curated inventory of unique and one-off pieces are available from either of his two spaces. One is a two-storey emporium on Church Street close to ‘Alfie’s Antiques Market’ and the other is in the superb building ‘The Old Cinema’ London’s antique and vintage department store
in Chiswick. Each outlet features a collection of furniture, lighting, objet d’art and contemporary art; everything is also available to purchase via his online boutique.
Anna and Malcolm have been planning the bold and stylish joint project for a while, and the first collection (launching now) includes a range of gorgeous 1930s Deco-style armchairs by Jindrich Halabala - the very sought after H269s model. Finished in a gorgeous suite of patterns and colours from fabric company “Arley House” and Linwood textiles. Also available to buy will be a range of single armchairs and pairs - all beautifully restored and re-upholstered in fabrics shot through with Anna’s trademark style. All of the pieces have wonderfully characterful arms, legs and other beautiful details, restored with care by Malcolm and his team of artisans.
Anna and Malcolm completed the project with a photo-shoot showcasing the one-off pieces available, with Anna styling the images with her favourite finds from RetroLiving’s wonderful collection in the Church Street store.
